Week 32 is exciting! Just eight weeks to go until full term. While it may not feel exciting, every week you are pregnant, is a good and helps your baby prepare to be born and survive outside of your body. These last weeks of pregnancy can be filled with things like lower back aches, and anxiety, but you can also chose to have them be filled with lots of fun as well. 

Surround yourself with people who will help you maintain your sanity and provide you with positivity. Enjoy a good childbirth class, go to prenatal yoga, and consider having a baby shower or blessingway. These are all things that you can do to stay positive.

You will be having your prenatal appointments more frequently at this point. You will most likely will be going in every other week for a few more weeks. This is a sure sign that you are getting close. 

Your baby is growing bigger and getting stronger. They are practicing breathing and allowing their brains to continue to develop. Everyday, they move and stretch, growing stronger to the time when it will be for labor. Your baby's movements will continue, but change slightly. You can't feel big movements and bold kicks because your baby is filling the uterus more and more, leaving them less room to move. What you will feel are bumps, nudges, and swishes. 

Come up with an end of pregnancy to do list:

  • Have you packed a hospital bag?
  • Have you packed one for your partner?
  • Have you written a birth plan? Does it include postpartum and newborn care?
  • Do you have a list of people that you will need to contact once the baby is born? Does that include places like your insurance company?
  • Have you pre-registered at the hospital? Or have you ordered your homebirth kit?

Staying busy will help these last few weeks pass by with ease and grace, and won't drive you nuts in the process.

See all ultrasound weeks.
